Adventure of Milo and Otis II?
Silly adventure about a novellist forced to go into town from her cabin with a lout of a fur trapper. All things imaginable happen as they try to reach it, snowstorms, ice breaking, wolves, you name it. Speaking of animals, the story takes a pause throughout to watch subplots featuring animals. Along with wolves, wwe have 2 bear cubs, a faithful dog, and a talking crow. Pretty soon the filmmakers get clever as we compare the animals with the humans. Not worth your time, even though animals are certainly being put through the tumbler for this one.

Suffers from the low budget
This B picture has some good action sequences but is badly let down by some poor studio production including some of the worst back projection you will ever see.
The dogs take the acting honours.

Let me preface this review by saying I own a copy of this film on DVD, so I've viewed it more than once recently. Armand Scheafer, producer and B. Reeves "Breezy" Eason are not generally known for "woman's pictures" This film doesn't change that perception. These two holder-overs at Republic from the Mascot Pictures days, tried and failed to make a Northwoods adventure picture with lots of stock footage and obvious "sound stage bound" outdoors scenes and a "bad" good guy played by Richard Arlen and a "good" bad guy played by Lyle Talbot, but it just doesn't come off. Beverly Roberts is the "star" and the focus, such as it is, of the whole film. Interesting curio in the resume's of Schaeffer and Eason, which otherwise is packed with grade A work in numerous films. Arlen, Talbot and the supporting cast bring professional work to the production, but alas!, all in vain. Curiosity value only.
